A New Age
"Eternally chained to a stone, eternally watched."
Tall, youthful, and a soft but powerful voice. He seemed to have powers beyond you.
You found him in the Labyrinth. Chained to a stone with magical manacles, being watched by a great stone eagle riding upon a disk of moonlight. His eyes were held open, and he was forced to forever heal as night after night, a giant bird would come in and feast upon him. The last cut stitched up as the bird began again. You saved his life, and learned he was ancient, and powerful – a creature who knew gods. He gave you information to get through the labyrinth, and gifts, powerful gifts, that would help you in the future. He said you would probably never see him again.
